Any Original Video Files from the EOS M camera

Any chance someone can send me some of their original video files they shot using the EOS M camera? I can't really decide on buying this camera yet from only seeing the crappy YouTube and Vimeo downloads that always have at least three generations of compression applied.

Re: Any Original Video Files from the EOS M camera

Alex,

B&H has a fantastic sale on the EOS M that ends today. (Mine has already shipped. I couldn't pass it up.)

The EOS M video should look virtually identical to all of the other Canon crop video except that of the 70D. The M has the same sensor as the 7D, the latest image processor, and the same codec as the other APS-C cams. Maybe there are some minor differences in noise at high ISO due to the tighter layout, but I don't expect this to be noticeable without peeping at pixels.

I expect the bigger differences/concerns to be functional:
* Slow autofocus for stills, given no mirror.
* Operation largely from the touchscreen. (Though it's capacitative, so it should feel like a modern smart phone.)
* I hear that battery life is limited from the small battery.
* I don't believe that it has a headphone output, though it does have a mic input.
* It records to SD Cards, which might limit RAW performance from Magic Lantern.
* It's not clear to me if you can adjust the ISO by 1/3 stops or if it's limited to full stops.
* It's smaller and lighter than a DSLR, so it will be yet more sensitive to vibration.

So, the shooter will notice the difference when shooting the EOS M compared to a DSLR, but the audience won't likely know the difference - unless you missed a photo due to slow autofocus or shook the camera due to the lighter, smaller body.

I'm looking forward to getting mine, primarily as a travel camera.

This EOS-M video I uploaded, shot at 108030p, had NO compression applied (smart rendered). If you download the original file you will get the ooc video quality exactly:
